Alta Journal, using reporting from the California Independent Booksellers Alliance, brings you this handy list of the bestselling titles at independent bookstores across Northern and Southern California for the sales week ending July 10, 2022.

Those titles include Taste: My Life Through Food, a memoir by actor and food connoisseur Stanley Tucci covering various periods of his life through intimate stories and recipes. Home-cooked meals can have a meaningful impact on a person, as Alta explored in an interview with chef and restaurateur Alice Waters. Also on this week’s list is Malcolm Gladwell’s The Bomber Mafia: A Dream, a Temptation, and the Longest Night of the Second World War, which follows a group of military officers focused on strategic bombing during World War II. War buffs, take note: this era also serves as the backdrop to Alta’s serialization of Marianne Wiggins’s Properties of Thirst, in which we present the opening section of this powerful novel through a series of five excerpts.
